election, it is clear that the president is headed for setting an environment for this electoral map. he has a serious advantage. >> [indiscernible] >> right, mitt romney will do something tomorrow to make a seismic shift. you also engage in more localized races, state, congressional and senate. >> we are primarily focused on the presidential election appeared the goal at crossroads is to beat president obama. but we are also heavily invested in senate and house races. in a lot of ways, the other super pacs are not. we are focusing on all of the senate races, where you will see the advertising earlier on. the bigger the office, the more people pay attention earlier. >> crossroads plays this outsized role in the senate races. don't think that these two are not inclined. i am not suggesting it is nefarious. even if there is parity between the democrats and republicans alike in the presidential advertising, they are way out spending on the senate races and house races. and those have been packed. it is because of the environment, how people feel when there is billions of dollars of ad spend

didn't wait for washington nor international treaty and environment or anything like this. we just moved forward. i remember washington was never that enthusiastic about infrastructure. you know how much we are falling behind in infrastructure nationwide compared to the rest of the world. but we in california we said yes to infrastructure. and now we can see construction in schools and roads and affordable housing and other projects all over the state of california. washington said no to stem cell research. imagine, we said yes. and we invested $3 billion. as a matter of fact, right here at u.s.c. we have one of the great centers for staple-cell research, and they are drawing money for those $3 billion for their center. washington said no to our landmark climb change law. million solar roofs, list goes on and on. we said yes, yes and yes. and we moved forward. some of the most powerful solutions come from local government and also grass roots. people power. not from washington or paris or moscow or beijing. finally, i learned quickly that a post partisan way of governing is the mos

back dollars to new jersey in this environment. and what would you identify as the most pressing new jersey project in need of fiscal funding? >> unfortunately, these guys abuse be earmarked process. there were excessive. and of course now we are at a point with our debt problems that we cannot afford them. so i am going to fight tooth and nail -- within the confines of form and other plans that exist for people to compete. and i am going be very active around the state. we lost a big army base. people all around new jersey. sure where you were in that fight. i did not see you. we lost that base. lost those jobs. they moved to aberdeen, maryland and a sky high price tag for the american taxpayer. >> time, sir. >> that is what we have to work for. >> thank you, sir. >> look, joe, you are entitled to your opinion, but not your facts. the reality is that when the base -- i did not have the privilege at the time when that was going under, was going on. so, that is not when you cannot subscribe to me. i joined colleagues who were representing the area to be supportive. but suggesting that

harmed by racial preferences by being put in academic environments without warning. they are ill-prepared to compete with some of the most competitive students in the country. we also argue under principles previously established by the supreme court, the university texas' racial preference system at issue in this case is unconstitutional, although there are respectable arguments both ways, and i think the reason -- the reason i think fisher is a good bet to become the most important affirmative action case ever is simply the change in composition of the court since the last affirmative action case in 2003 and the two university of michigan cases. the court split 5-4, opening the door wide as long as quotas are avoided, as long as things are holistic, to large racial preferences in admissions, and has served as a model for universities around the country at every level, medical, law school, to expand their use of racial preferences, even though it is reported to lay down principles that would restrain the use of racial preferences. the reason we think they will not is that justic

be able, and security services, that would provide an environment to the citizenry to be able to express themselves politically and economically and socially, and also an armed force that would defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of syria. this sector, armed forces, intelligence services, the national police, would be apolitical. we thought of the many challenges ahead, and there are a number of challenges we have taken. we have taken lessons learned from iraq, from libya, and we are under no illusion that there would not be some measure of chaos the day after the collapse of the assad regime treat this may include a vengeance killings, civil disturbances, leaking, and certainly it will include an instrument of reaching power to try to destabilize the situation that is already highly unstable. we took together really all of the potential challenges that we face and head, and we tried to see the possible solutions for each. luckily for us, there are many regional military councils that have endorsed the principle of civilian authority over the military. this is good news. we
